DME - time before departure


#1

I know last year they extended the time from 3 hours before the flight departed to 4 hours before for domestic flights. I just got my DME confirmation eail and they said it’s 3 hours prior. Did they change it back?


#2

It was changed for the holidays last year. And also because there was work going on at the airport.

It may change again for the holiday, but if you already got a time then it’s fine. :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks! I didn’t realize it was just for the holidays/construction. Makes sense, we left the weekend before Thanksgiving.


#4

It’s been back to 3hrs ahead domestic for a bit now.


#5

We are going in December and our TA said it will be 4 hours at that time


#6

@DisneyDayDreamin, may I ask when in December? We are going 7th-16th. I was assuming a 3 hr departure, figuring we were still far enough out from xmas…


#7

Dec 6-12. Our TA told us 4 hours so I was going off of that. I guess I’ll find out once we get there :confused:


#8

Ours today was 3.5 hrs.


#9

Did your ME email have the timeframe? We are going pretty much the same time and mine said 3hrs.


#10

No, I haven’t gotten anything from DME that specifies the return time. Hopefully it will be 3 hours


#11

Ours today was 3 hours.
